Democrats pivoting from race to guns:
In crime stories, race is emphasized only when the perp is white
Nobody can say the Democrats and the media are not nimble.
Crushed to learn that the Uvalde, Texas, school shooter was not a white kid, they quickly swung to blaming the National Rifle Association, Republicans and anyone not embracing their gun control agenda.
Led by Blamer-in-Chief Joe Biden, the Dems went bat crazy. On cue, Mr. Biden castigated “the gun lobby” and promised to rein it in.
“This is on you!” former presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke yelled at Texas Gov. Greg Abbott while crashing his press conference. Mr. O’Rourke, who goes by “Beto,” is trying to unseat Mr. Abbott. This won’t help.
Mr. O’Rourke went on to tweet that the deaths of the 19 children and two teachers were “direct consequences of the choices made by Greg Abbott and the majority of those in the legislature.”
Yup, it’s their fault, not the shooter or even Mr. O’Rourke’s party, which has been working for decades to unravel the social fabric while deinstitutionalizing the mentally ill and handcuffing police. --->READ MORE HERE

More gun laws will not stop America’s moral decay:
Gun control does not show less gun violence but rather exponentially more
This past week our nation saw another morally lost young man enter a local school and proceed to shoot and kill 19 children and two teachers. The next shoe to drop was as predictable as the sunrise: Our nation’s elites rushed to their respective podiums to score political points. Their solution? Remove the personal rights of all law-abiding Americans and replace these rights with more laws.
In the minds of our country’s political class, this is the only solution. The average citizen’s freedom “to keep and bear arms” is clearly to blame for every heinous act reported on the nightly news. In the Mad Hatter’s world of today’s progressives, more laws and less liberty are the only things that will arrest our cultural collapse.
The only acceptable solution our country’s smart folks see to the tsunami of violence sweeping over our schools and through our streets is to take freedom away from you and me and give more power to themselves. In their minds, gun ownership equals gun violence in the same way car ownership inevitably results in vehicular homicide. All other possibilities of cause and effect seem to completely escape their thinking.
But setting aside the obvious non sequitur implied by those who seem to believe owning a hammer surely means you will bludgeon someone with it, let’s look at another flaw in the logic of those who argue for “gun control.”
The clear matter of fact is that the data do not support their premise; quite the contrary, the lessons of history prove the exact opposite. --->READ MORE HERE
